Phil Mickelson rebounded from a lackluster outing at Torrey Pines last week to nearly become the sixth PGA Tour player to card a 59.
Unfortunately, as you can see from the video above, his 25-foot birdie putt on his final hole Thursday at the Phoenix Open curled around the lip of the cup and stayed out, leaving him in the lead with a 60.
"When it was a foot out, I just couldn't see it missing either way," Mickelson said via a tweet on the PGA Tour website. "It was right in the center."
Mickelson did tie the course record at the par-71 TPC Scottsdale course, but as he told the Golf Channel later in an interview, "You don't get chances to shoot 59 very often and to have that putt on line, I'm kind of mortified it didn't go in."
